Actor, Director, Writer, Producer, Additional Credits
After graduating from Harvard University, Tyler Spindel moved to Los Angeles to pursue his childhood dream of performing stand up comedy. Touring the country and hosting a weekly show at Hollywood's Laugh Factory nurtured a deeper understanding of comedy as an art form, eventually leading Tyler to a new and overarching passion for directing.

Tyler's early foray into the field began with directing viral branded content and commercials for such major companies as Gillette, Macy's, Samsung, Nickelodeon, Del Taco, and Nike to name a few. From there he would transition into television, directing episodes of The Jack and Triumph Show, Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, Breaking In, Sing It, A Night of Too Many Stars, as well as producing and directing sketches for over 350 episodes of Chelsea Lately. Tyler's film career has included directing second unit for seven studio Adam Sandler/Happy Madison features and writing, producing, and directing the much acclaimed short film, Love and Germaphobia, which won awards from several major film festivals including Montreal Just for Laughs, Hollyshorts Film Festival, Funny or Die LA Comedy Shorts Festival, LA Comedy Festival, New England Film Festival, and Milwaukee Shorts Festival.

Since, Tyler has directed 3 Happy Madison/Netflix Original Feature Films... The Wrong Missy, Father of the Year, and The Out-laws. All of which were number 1 worldwide on Netflix for considerable stints after their releases.
